LINDA CHORNEY - Grammy Nominee - Appears on the GingerNewYork TV Show in New York City
Multi-Talented Linda Chorney Interviews with Jazz Artists Ron Aprea & Angela DeNiro on the Next LIVE GingerNewYork TV Show at Manhattan Neighborhood Network TV Studios. RSVP for Studio Audience, Friday, Jan 26, 2018, Spectrum Ch 34 &1995, 2pm.
Linda Chorney's humanitarian efforts through her music include partial responsibility for the erection of bronze statue of Martin Richard, lost to the Boston Marathon Tragedy, raising funds for Boys and Girls Clubs of Tucson, volunteering performances for charitable organizations such as Light Of Day Foundation, Where Angels Play Foundation, singing and donating a guitar to the VA Health Care Facility of Tucson.
Ms. Chorney's music is a blend of pop and American roots music -- folk, blues, rock, and R&B. She began her professional career at 21 when a club owner in Key West, Florida heard her singing on the Mallory Square dock. He asked her to play in his bar that night and she's been playing gigs ever since. Chorney came from a musical family. Her mother was a concert pianist, her grandfather played mandolin, and a great aunt sang opera. She started playing piano at age four and guitar at ten, and started writing songs at 12. By the time she was discovered, she had several sets worth of original material. After the Key West gig, she put together a band and started playing covers in biker bars, with a few originals tossed in. Over the years, she moved to more diverse venues, slowly adding more original material to her sets until the covers were the anomalies. Chorney has been on and off the road for 25 years, performing on all seven continents. She sang for Nelson Mandela in Boston, after his release from prison, in front of a crowd of 250,000, on a bill with Paul Simon, Jackson Browne, and other well-known artists.
